Barbara Romero

It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Romero announce her passing on July 28, 2022 peacefully at her home in Sacramento, CA.  Barbara was born on October 26, 1935 to parents, Longino and Guadalupe “Lupe” Saucedo, in San Bernardino, CA.  She is preceded in death by her parents and sisters Chavela Barrios, Lorenza “Lencha” House and Mercedes “Mercy” Gonzales all from San Bernardino.  She is survived by her brother, Cesilio “Chilo” (wife Emma) Saucedo, from San Bernardino.  She is preceded in death by her Mother-in-law, Guadalupe “Lupe” Armenta, from Needles, CA.  She was married for 64 years and is survived by her devoted and loving husband, Arthur Romero.  She is preceded in death by her son, Michael Romero, and survived by her daughters, Elaine Rodriguez and Deborah “Debbie” Ortega along with 7 grandchildren, Melissa Limeberger, Matthew Limeberger, Michael Romero Jr., Johnny Romero (wife Denise), Anastasia “Ana” Romero, Robert Jiron II and Joseph Jiron (fiancé Eva) and 19 great-grandchildren.  She also raised her niece, Michele Garcia, from a young age along with her children.  She is also survived by many nieces and nephews most of which live in Southern California.  Barbara was devoted to her husband and a loving mother.  Together with her husband they dedicated their life raising their family and always putting their children first.  They financially sacrificed sending their three children through parochial schools, St. Charles Borromeo, Bishop Manogue and St. Pius X High Schools.  She was an active member of St. Charles Borromeo parish back in 1964 volunteering her time at the school and was an active member of the Women’s club.  She started her State career once her children entered into High School.  She was a Personnel Analyst for the Department of Parks and Recreation and then transferred to the California Youth Authority headquarters where she retired from after working approximately 10 years.  She not only raised her own children but with her husband helped raise and nurture many of her grandchildren and some great-grandchildren providing a safe and loving home.  She loved all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and enjoyed being around them.  She will be greatly missed but forever in our hearts until we are all reunited in heaven.
